Is your child 11 going on 21 and their vocabulary has somehow dwindled down to just one word answers?
There are three different seminars in the Teen Triple P series –
Raising Responsible Teenagers
Raising Competent Teenagers
Getting Teenagers Connected
These are informal sessions that are about 90 minutes in length and you can choose to attend one, two or all three. During the sessions, how to address the following concerns are discussed:
Encourage responsible behavior
Improve family relationships
Deal with independence
Manage problems at school or with friends
At each seminar you'll be given a tip sheet to take home that provides a summary of the key concepts and strategies you just heard about.
Primary Care Teen Triple P
Are you looking for some new ideas and strategies for dealing with the challeges of raising a teenager?
How It Works?
You (and your partner if you want) will meet with a practitioner for and one on one support and to discuss some strategies for the behaviours you would like to see changed in your teen. You could meet up to four times depending on what you need. You will be given a tip sheet to take home to help remind you of the strategies you spoke about.
Is their constant yelling at your home or is it the opposite – complete silence between you and your teen. Maybe you want to prepare yourself before the teenage behaviours invade your home!
Group Triple P Teen is a great opportunity to meet other parents in similar situations. Using your workbook to guide you, you'll be given tips and suggestions to fit the needs of your family. The video Every Parent's Guide to Teenagers will let you see how the strategies work.
How It Works?
There are about 12 parents in a group session and each session is about two hours. During the sessions you will learn about:
Helping teens to become skilled at making good personal decisions
Negotiating rules, responsibilities and privileges
Staying calm when inevitable conflicts arise
Being realistic: every teen and every parent will make mistakes
Taking care of yourself as a parent
There are no more than 6 sessions that you will attend plus two to three phone calls – at a pre-determined time- that you can discuss what is working and what isn’t. For the last session, you will meet up with the group to talk about any problems you may still have but to also see how far you have come!
